Happy Tuesday to you all!
It's time once again for another Midnight Madness sketch challenge, so hope you are all ready! I have to say I loved seeing all those pretty creations with last weeks sketch and can't wait to see what you all come up with for this week!
Congratulations to our winners this week!!
Our sponsors this week are Priscillastyles-store
 and our monthly sponsor is Papertemptress
My project this week was using both sponsors goodies, so I figured I'd better make something special!! I decided to make a matching card and gift box and used one of Priscilla's gorgeous Christmas tree images from her latest digi's...there are so many ways you can use these and I for one love them! 
I didn't want to loose the image in lots of color so chose the gold and white gold dp and some ivory lace and ribbon to adorn my card. This dp is just gorgeous and the photos really don't do it justice! The gold is called Antique Gold (Antique Gold Mica/Metallic) and the white is White Gold Cardstock. Both of which have this beautiful richness to them, with a sheen but not really shiny. Excellent quality that lends perfectly to being embossed! Love these papers so much!
I framed my trees with this pretty embossing folder from Cuttlebug called "Flourished Frame", then added some sparkly leaves from my stash, a white poinsettia from last years Christmas stuff and some yellow pearls and yellow metal brads. I colored the trees in copics, cut them out, popped them up on foam dots then added a little sparkle with stickles "Holly".  
My little jewelry gift box I added the same dp's too, then added some cream colored ribbon around the top and popped up another Christmas tree image and some pearls. A nice little gift set for someone special, don't you think!
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you won't forget to check out my DT sisters blogs and leave them some love!
Have a fantastic week!
